§ Mr. Clark Hutchison
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what pro-press has been made in the preservation, photographing and recording of documents, held in Aden Government Departments, which relate to the early history of Aden and the Protectorate.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
Some financial provision for protection of volumes in the archives has been made in the Colony Estimates for 1960–61. Otherwise, so far as preservation is concerned, I have nothing to add to my predecessor's reply to the hon. Member of 16th July, 1958.99W
It has however been possible to appoint a historian under a Colonial Development and Welfare Research Scheme to prepare a history of Aden for the period of the British connection. This history will draw on much of the information in the Aden Government Archives.
